After much speculation, Warner Bros. today confirmed the cast of the upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad. True to form, it’s got a lot of star power.
The Wrap drops the details that many a DC Comics fan will enjoy, including a few surprises along the way. Such as you ask? Well how about Will Smith as Deadshot? Or how about Tom Hardy as Colonel Rick Flagg?
And then there were the rumors about Harley Quinn and Joker being on the team. After much rumors, they’re both confirmed, and to be played by Margot Robbie and Jared Leto.
That’s not all though, two more members of the Squad have been confirmed. Jai Courtney will play Boomerang, while Cara Delevingne will play Enchantress. Clearly WB and DC are not afraid to go big on this movie, picking characters both popular and unexpected.
Here’s what WB had to say about the movie cast reveal:
“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one. David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote ‘Training Day’ and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara. We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 5, 2016
